    Guns of History - United States Christian Commission Civil War Coffee Wagon - Model Shipways - Build Log NCC (Navy-Curtis Craft) - Scale 1:16

    So years ago, in a galaxy far far away, I owned two cafés and a coffee roasting business. So when I saw this how could I not build it! By the way, it was on sale….even better. Looks like a fun build. So I’m going to pull a shot of espresso and start the build. BMT

    Introducing Ponytail: another Halcon-build... [COMPLETED BUILD]

    Hello people, I'm introducing my self after some week of 'lurking' in the Forum. What a fine place to be! As many before I never did a wooden ship as being more interested in plastic kits, modeltrains and above all cardmodelling. Next to that I'm volunteer/semi-professional modelbuilder at...

    Du Doch Nicht!! Eduard 1/72 scale [COMPLETED BUILD]

    Well…I am sidetracked again! ROTF I build and collect military aircraft, and the majority of them are in 1/72 scale, so they take up less space. I do have large models as well, however thus far I only had WW2 airplanes and fighter jets in 1/72 scale. Recently I decided to build some WW1...

    I am in the process of building one of these chinese wooden kits. An interesting experience to say the least. I don't speak Chinese so it has involved a fair bit of 'build by pictures! Not too painful but still a bit laborious. So far so good, as the pictures that will accompany my efforts will...

    MARIA HF31 fishing Ewer Build Log NCC (Navy-Curtis Craft) 1:72 [COMPLETED BUILD]

    I was still determining what new build I wanted to get into, but this fishing Ewer looked interesting. Close to OcCre’s Palamos but allows for sailing or as a motorized build. I am looking at the sailing build. Kit was purchased back in September 022 from Model Expo on sale. When...

As for historical accuracy and the sales blurb that it reflects Mary Rose Trust studies... well maybe it did 20 years ago but the research has moved a...

    Pocher 1:8 scale Lotus 72 [COMPLETED BUILD]

    I have been waiting for this kit to be available, and I just found it on sale…so I couldn’t resist! So the Brabham will get pushed back, along with my airplane builds. I am still working on my ship, but once this kit arrives, I will be working on both. This is probably my favorite Formula One...

    Harriet Lane Model Shipways Solid hull build log by Peter Gutterman [COMPLETED BUILD]

    This solid hull kit has been discontinued, replaced with a plank on bulkhead version. I like carving solid hulls and planking over them. This version represents the Harriet Lane as she might have appeared Jan. 1 1863 when she was captured by the Confederates. Her appearance is modeled after she...

    La Salamandre 1/96 by Miniature Arts [COMPLETED BUILD]

    Hello all A very attractive model, but a rather difficult kit. First of all, I assembled the jig, but the board was bent. I was able to fix it without any problems by pasting it on a 1cm thick plate. The frame is as easy as sticking two pieces together. There are a few parts that are...
